Take a screenshot of something while you're in XD, and when you paste it, it's HUGE. This really slows things down when you're trying to do ultra-rapid prototyping. How can I paste at the exact size of the element I just copied?
I've seen other people with this issue on other forums but never a solution. Just thought I'd check if anyone had found a solution.
Thanks for reaching out to Adobe.
Sorry to hear that you're facing this issue.
We have taken a note of this and have raised a ticket to engineering team. Hopefully you'll see the fix in fututre releases of XD.

Could please detail a little more your workflow or is it possible to attach a video so I could better understand the steps here?
When you say "Take a screenshot of something while you're in XD" you take screenshot of something from XD? or outside of XD?
I take a screenshot of something within XD. I just use a short cut for taking a screenshot (I am on a Mac, but it's similar to Print Screen on a PC). Cmd + Ctrl + Shift + 4. So the element is now in my clipboard. When I paste, the size issue happens.
This never was an issue when I used Sketch. I would use the exact same process, and I could paste an element directly on top of the larger image. This is important if you're doing rapid prototyping and don't need something to be functional, but are just quickly moving things around. It's terrible to have to worry that you now have an element which is the wrong size completely and you have to "fake it" and try to make it the right size.
